"A cursed heart"

My story:)

“Please don’t do this it wasn’t my fault!” Medusa pleaded with tears in her eyes.


“No! It was your fault! And for that I shall put a curse on your dreaded face!” Athena screamed with pride. With a lift of her left hand she pounced it down and put a curse on Medusa. She screamed and fainted on the floor.


Three years later, Athena turned twenty years old. Athena was walking in a crowded street. You could hear people trying to sell material. After about an hour of walking in the town’s street, Athena felt like she was being watched. So she quickly turned around to see who was behind her, but it didn’t seem like anybody was watching her. She looked around suspiciously turned back around. Then all of a sudden she felt like she was being watched again! Athena started pacing, running, and now she was sprinting. Later on Zeus noticed that his daughter wasn’t in his room to talk about spears and war. So he walked around the castle to see where his daughter was. He noticed that there was a slight whimper in the room next to him. Zeus opened the door and saw Athena crying laying on her bed with her head in her pillow. He closed the door and sat next to her on the bed.


“Darling are you okay?” Zeus asked. As Athena looked Zeus was astonished to see his daughter crying.


“Dad! I can’t take it anymore I feel like I’m being watched”!’ Athena exclaimed with tears in her eyes. He held her and ordered guards to protect his daughter. They agreed and went anywhere with Athena. One night Athena noticed something strange. Her guards were not in the room with her. Athena went to tell her dad what was going on. “Why weren’t the guards around?” She said. When she opened the door to see Zeus.


“I see” Said Zeus “let’s go and investigate, wife! Get everyone out of here. Me and Athena will find out what’s going on.” Zeus announced. His wife agreed and gathered everyone in the castle and took them outside. Both father and daughter snuck around the castle like mice searching for cheese. Both of them heard hisses coming from the Dungun. They went down the stairs and found a monster, but they didn’t know that the disturbing, scaly and rough creature was MADEUSA!!


“Well, Well, Well if it isn’t the princess of the monster world.” Medusa announced. Zeus got furious at what Medusa said. He got his lightning bolt and ran towards her. Medusa took off her mask and looked into Zeus’s eyes and turned him into stone,


“NOOOOOOO!!!!” Athena screamed. She tore off her nightgown, under it was her armor, and grabbed a spear that was next to her. Medusa picked up sword that was next to her on the ground. After a silence they started to fight. All you could hear in the castle was sword swinging FWING! SHINK! Then all of a sudden Medusa took off the cloth over her head and mask, Athena quickly shut her eyes. Medusa kicked Athena to the floor.


“Goodbye princess!!” Medusa screamed. As she stabbed Athena , Athena took her spear and sliced her head. The corpse of Medusa fell to the floor. As Zeus’s daughter Athena lay on the floor, she used the last of her power to bring her father back to life. As Zeus came back to life he gasped for air as if he was holding his breath forever. He looked up a little and saw his daughter dying on the floor. He dropped lightning bolt and ran towards her. He held Athena tightly pulled her away to see her face. And the last words she said were. “I’m a strong women daddy”, as she took her last breath she closed her eyes and her arms dropped to the floor. Zeus cried and screamed for his daughter. Later on they had a funeral and made a statue of Athena to respect her.


“Oh darling if only you just let her be.” Her mother said with tears. And both husband and wife left her grave.


“Darling are you okay?” Zeus asked. As Athena looked Zeus was astonished to see his daughter crying.

My opinion

This is a story for my class and for my teachers to read. This is about a myth it includes Athena, Zeus and Medusa (+ a little bit of Zeus's wife) I entertained myself with this myth i just hope my teachers will like it as well.

Questions

Did you like my story when you read it and does it make any sense? If you were Athena what would you do? And a good question would be what do you think is the natural phenomenon.
